Would you please explain why?

Thank you for your help❣️

A: That’s ok👍🏻

This might be a bit of a complicated/weird grammar situation.

I think “the” is more natural because you’re already inside a ‘family’ group (because of the first clause: “In some families”) so the “the” is referring back to the “family” you are inside of [& you’re only, figuratively, inside of one at a time]

Usually they are interchangeable, but here it would just sound a little off. —that may just be because a more natural way to say it would be:
“Some of the families went to bed earlier”

One more example:

In all but three cases, the participant decided to push the button.

In all but three cases, a participant decided to push the button.

Here, you can use either one, both sound natural. The “the” in the first one refers to the specific participant in his/her specific case. The “a” in the second, refers to any of the participants in the whole study. But the mean the exact same thing overall.
Q: In this picture, a human is snowboarding, but we can't see who he(or she) is.
What subjective word is the best?
I would like to ask this question to native English people. He? She? Man? Woman? Boy? Girl?
Mmmm, it is difficult for me.
A: I think "they" is best.

Can "they" be singular? It is a big debate in English. Some people say "they" can only refer to a group of people. Some people say "they" can ALSO refer to a single person of unknown gender.

"Singular they" is common nowadays. A few people still disagree, though. Some teachers do not teach it.

The debate is so big that one of the biggest dictionary-makers, Merriam-Webster, made "they" their "word of the year" in 2019. ("word of the year" = "most significant word during this year")

However, if you disagree with the "singular they," it is best to use "he or she."

SO "...we can't see who they are."
OR "...we can't see who he or she is."
Q: I read 15 picture books today. I tried to read them without dictionary. Usually, I use dictionary a lot. But that way makes me reading very slowly. So, I decided not to use dictionary as far as I read easy picture books. Even though there were the books for around 5, I didn't know some words. But, while I read 15 books and looked at many pictures, eventually I could imagine the words meaning. It's interesting experience for me. Does this sound natural?
